The wildflowers are starting to bloom here on Cape Cod and are gorgeous! I loved this photograph of Stout Blue-Eyed Grass that I saw on one of my walks.
Stout Blue-Eyed Grass usually blooms in May and June so it is somewhat early this year. Its flowers have 6 pointed petals and yellow centers. Thin bladelike leaves rise from the base. It is native to the area.
Have you ever seen Stout Blue-Eyed Grass? Pretty, don’t you think?
Pretty soon the bandstand at Nauset Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod will be busy again with their summer concerts..
The Nauset Beach Summer Concert Series are free concerts and are held every Monday evening in July and August. They are a lot of fun, so put it on your calendar for the summer!
Every time i pass this “tree face” on Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill on Cape Cod, I chuckle.
isn’t it a great face on the tree?
I loved this black and white photograph of one of the hiking trails at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. If you park in the first parking lot on the left before you go up to the overlook of Nauset Marsh, that trail will take you by these trees and on a wonderful hike through the meadows, swamps, woodlands and by the marshes.
It’s a must if you get to Fort Hill. Wonderful hike… not too long and absolutely spectacular!
We’re waiting for the spring-like weather to come to Cape Cod.
I took this photograph at Marconi Beach in Wellfleet last Sunday when the temperatures were about 30 degrees with 60 mile an hour winds. It felt more like Colorado weather than Cape Cod weather.
But a pretty photograph with the snowy beach and the storm clouds, don’t you think?
We had the most beautiful winter here on Cape Cod and ever since spring started, it has been pretty dreary and cold. It snowed off and on Sunday and Monday, with some bouts of really heavy blizzard-like conditions!
I had to take the photograph yesterday from Orleans. It was snowing again!
